Guilford Courthouse NMP

— National Park Service —

The old postcard (below) depicts the Guilford Battle Ground Company's treatment of the battlefield landscape. In 1887 the company began constructing the row of monuments and arched entrance gates. Installing a total of thirty-two monuments on 125 acres of battlefield land, the Company was more intent or ornamenting the field than recreating the authentic 1781 scene.

Other monuments can be found at tour road stops and along park trails and historic Garden Road. The many monuments reflect the Company's idea that the "Battle Ground" should become North Carolina's primary site to honor its people's role in the American Revolution.
